Tehillim (Book of Psalms), Chapter 16

'"`UNIQ--named-00000000-QINU`"'1 Michtam of David. Keep me, O G-d; for I have taken refuge in Thee.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000001-QINU`"'2 I have said unto HaShem: 'Thou art my L-rd; I have no good but in Thee';

'"`UNIQ--named-00000002-QINU`"'3 As for the holy that are in the earth, they are the excellent in whom is all my delight.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000003-QINU`"'4 Let the idols of them be multiplied that make suit unto another; their drink-offerings of blood will I not offer, nor take their names upon my lips.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000004-QINU`"'5 O HaShem, the portion of mine inheritance and of my cup, Thou maintainest my lot.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000005-QINU`"'6 The lines are fallen unto me in pleasant places; yea, I have a goodly heritage.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000006-QINU`"'7 I will bless HaShem, who hath given me counsel; yea, in the night seasons my reins instruct me.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000007-QINU`"'8 I have set HaShem always before me; surely He is at my right hand, I shall not be moved.

'"`UNIQ--named-00000008-QINU`"'9 Therefore my heart is glad, and my glory rejoiceth; my flesh also dwelleth in safety;

'"`UNIQ--named-00000009-QINU`"'10 For Thou wilt not abandon my soul to the nether-world; neither wilt Thou suffer Thy godly one to see the pit.

'"`UNIQ--named-0000000A-QINU`"'11 Thou makest me to know the path of life; in Thy presence is fulness of joy, in Thy right hand bliss for evermore.
